Where does Bouteka come from?
Bouteka is the result of a friendship born during our bachelor's degree in management economics at the Haute Ecole de Gestion de Fribourg, as well as the materialization of a common desire to create a company whose goal is a positive impact according to our values.
Sensitive to the protection of our planet and to the respect of each and everyone, we, Noureddine, Romeo, Alexis, had the idea of creating Bouteka to bring our contribution in the form of a real experience to the sustainable transition of our society. both ecologically and humanly.
It was in the spring of 2020 that the Bouteka idea germinated in our heads as part of an economic innovation course for our bachelor's degree. Following this first fictitious elaboration of the project, a concrete development phase follows with the help of the organization for young Friborg start-ups Fri Up. In the fall of 2020, we are selling our first baskets for Friborg students on the Pérolles university campus. Since that day, more than 1,500 baskets have been ordered and eaten that have helped promote healthy, responsible and affordable food.
With our experience of almost 2 years of delivering agricultural baskets for students, Bouteka is now embarking on a new adventure in order to offer the possibility to employees of Friborg companies to have a real triple positive impact.
La team Bouteka
1. Offer Fribourgeois a model of responsible, healthy and affordable food consumption
2. Revalorize the work of local farmers and craftsmen
3. Promote environmental awareness by providing a transparent, engaging and fun customer experience
In the long term, Bouteka wishes to become a benchmark alternative to the current mode of food consumption and thus actively contribute on its own scale to the renewal of a social and responsible economy, as well as to the preservation of Swiss natural resources.
We are convinced that by scrupulously following our mission and remaining faithful to our values, we can bring about a real change in the current mode of consumption, for the happiness of each and everyone, and that of our planet.
